Every year we lose more people to AIDS. It hasn't disappeared and it's not going away anytime soon. I urge you to seek out and support your local AIDS Organizations. Encourage everyone you know to practice safe sex and to get tested once a year. Even if you don't think you are at risk, get tested. I didn't think I was at risk either, and I almost died before I was diagnosed.
So excited today! It's 5 weeks from my Gastric Bypass surgery and I've reached my first short term goal! I got on the scale this morning and it read 400.0 exactly. When I left the hospital I weighed 468lbs on October 22, 2012. I'm way ahead of where I thought I'd be...I thought it would be closer to Christmas til I got to this point.
I'm not struggling too much with the food I'm eating, except for forgetting to drink enough fluids and to take small enough bites.
